People who visited or took part in our recent Christmas Crafts & Collectables Fair may like to know that the total net sum raised by the Rotary Club of Scunthorpe at that event (£1,200),  has been donated to a charity to assist with immediate relief efforts connected with Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.


Phil 2Rotary International in Britain and Ireland (RIBI) has close associations with Shelterbox (see and has its own fund for aiding disaster relief: the RIBI Donation Trust.

Many members of the public have been extremely generous and feel that they would like to channel their donations through us because Rotary has a reputation for ensuring that relief funds and supplies get to where they are needed most urgently in the shortest possible timescale.

The Rotary organisation has a network of club members across the world who can facilitate the channeling of  supplies in to the proper deserving areas with no risk of siphoning off into corrupt hands.

If you would like to make a donation please send a cheque payable to “RIBI Donation Trust” to The Rotary Club of Scunthorpe, c/o 8 Townhill Drive, Broughton, Brigg. DN20 0HF.


Thank you.
